The Tankard – Kennington, UK

We gave this tired old pub a great big kick up the back side with a vibrant and refreshing rethink both inside and out. The facade which had become a confused, incoherent mix of colours and signage has been brought together with a pillar box red, off white and charcoal colour scheme, picking out all its beautiful features.

The interior is fresh and inviting without deviating from the feel of an authentic old boozer. Upstairs there is a little hole-in-the-wall bar which takes its inspiration from working men’s clubs and theatre bar with globe lights, neons and glossy paint. From here you can access the huge roof terrace with pergolas which divide up the space forming cosy niches.
